Maserati bringing new sports car concept to Geneva?
Not according to the latest gossip, it hasn't. Word has it that in celebration of its centenary this year, the Trident marque is preparing a new sports car concept to unveil at the Geneva Motor Show. Apparently smaller than the aging GranTurismo, the new concept is said to take aim at the Jaguar F-Type – not to mention the Porsche 911.
According to GTSpirit, the concept could pack the Modenese automaker's new twin-turbo V6 or V8 engines, but no matter how many cylinders, it's understood we're likely looking at a front-engine/rear-drive layout and an automatic transmission.
In regards to the alleged showcar, we reached out to our source at Maserati, and they expressed serious doubt as to the veracity of the original report, while simultaneously not being able to confirm or deny its existence. For the moment, we're going to chalk this one up to the Rumormill until we hear more.
In any case, Maserati is also expected to reveal the finished version of its Ermenegildo Zegna edition Quattroporte, something it has only shown in "concept" (albeit close to production) form to date.
